Ah right, thanks.  I installed the xfce4-terminal package (0.8.10-1) and
couldn't reproduce it there, either.

My days of running unstable are in the past, I'm afraid, at least until
I get moving on joining Colin Watson as groff package maintainer, at
which time I'll have to get comfortable with it again.  But before that,
we gotta release groff 1.23.

I think it might be a good idea at this point to see if we can narrow
down which terminal escape sequences are working incorrectly.

What do you see if you run the following shell command?

$ printf '\e[1mbold\e[7minversebold\e[27mbold\e[22mnormal\e[0m\n'
